Suzanne by Leonard Cohen – Lyrics with Chords
[Verse 1] E Suzanne takes you down to her place near the river F#m You can hear the boats go by, you can spend the night beside her E And you know that she's half-crazy, but that's why you wanna be there G#m A And she feeds you tea and oranges that come all the way from China E F#m And just when you mean to tell her that you have no love to give her E F#m Then she gets you on her wavelength, and she lets the river answer E That you've always been her lover [Chorus 1] G#m A And you want to travel with her, and you want to travel blind E F#m And you know she will trust you for you've touched her perfect body E With your mind [Verse 2] E And Jesus was a sailor when he walked upon the water F#m And he spent a long time watching from his lonely wooden tower E And when he knew for certain only drowning men could see him G#m A He said: "All men will be sailors then until the sea shall free them" E F#m But he himself was broken long before the sky would open E F#m Forsaken, almost human, he sank beneath your wisdom E Like a stone [Chorus 2] G#m A And you want to travel with him, and you want to travel blind E F#m And you think maybe you'll trust him for he's touched your perfect body E With his mind [Verse 3] E Now Suzanne takes your hand, and she leads you to the river F#m She is wearing rags and feathers from the Salvation Army counter E And the sun pours down like honey on Our Lady of the Harbour G#m A And she shows you where to look among the garbage and the flowers E F#m There are heroes in the seaweed, there are children in the morning E F#m They are leaning out for love, and they will lean that way forever E While Suzanne holds the mirror [Chorus 3] G#m A And you want to travel with her, and you want to travel blind E F#m And you know that you can trust her for she's touched your perfect body E With her mind
